At the end of September our holidays recommenced and we look forward to welcoming more guests over the coming weeks during our Autumn UK breaks. Our local wildlife guides have been busy guiding our Days Out, showing people the best that the Cairngorms has to offer and our new Evening Mammal Hide has been running successfully, creating memorable Badger and Pine Marten experiences for many of you.

The over-riding risk assessments for our new hygiene regimes, social distancing and changes in delivery of any aspects of our wildlife experiences are in place, so that you can travel with confidence. We have restricted our holiday groups this autumn to five guests and one guide, to ensure we comply with all new regulations and the feedback from the first week’s guests show how grateful they are with these new logistics, ensuring they can still take a well-earned break safely. These comments from Chris and Lisa on the autumn week sum it all up. "....just to say we had a fantastic holiday. The accommodation and food were excellent and Craig was a star. We probably did not expect to get a holiday of this quality in this year so thanks to you all."

That doesn’t stop normal challenges occurring on our holidays and The Isles of Scilly was no exception. Again however, solutions are always found and gratefully received by guests, as these comments from Tony echo. "...Well, team Speyside have scored again. No ferry so straight on a helicopter. SIMPLY BRILLIANT. Very well done guys. Barbara is very relieved; she doesn’t like rocking and rolling ferries..." Naturally if you have any queries or want to ask any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thank you for continuing to do so by email, so that we can answer your queries as efficiently as possible.

We are continuing to broadcast Facebook ‘live’ sessions from our holidays and local areas each week, and our guides are also starting to plan for 2021 and focusing on some of their own holiday highlights and species in the schedule next year.
